    Along time friend who quit shooting several years-ago had them.

    His man game was HBR, where he shot his own 30 caliber.

    He had these for group shooting as well.

    From 1979...pretty cool! With the jackets we have now, there's no doubt you'll make killer bullets with them. -Al

    Congratulations! I have a set I got about 10 years ago, that originally came from Harold Broughton if I remember correctly? I use them quite a bit, makes a really good bullet on .790Ē jackets. Old dies, but still great!

    Lee, I have a couple of sample bullets that came with the dies, they appear to be in the 7 1/2 to 7 3/4 range. Lots of bearing surface.

    The paper work just indicates what the diameter of the shank should be on the finished bullet.

    Hey Bill, Glad to see you are still alive. Fowler Bullets? That tells us how long you've been away.

    dies

    Happy Birthday Jackie!

    Nice score. Your dies look a lot like mine that came from Leon Gass. I do also have a core squirt die just in case I might want the headache of making my own cores.

    Itís been 15 years. I plan on competing this year, and I am shocked at the decline in GC group shoots this year.

    Good to hear from you, Bill.

    My primary game is Varmint for Score, but I am wanting to get back more in to Group Shooting. I only shot two Matches last year, but did manage to win the Texas State LV.

    Getting these dies might seem like a throw back in the bullet making game, but I think a lot of shooters have forgot just how good the Fowler bullet, and others of a similar design shot.

    I will be back at the Bluebonnet this year. I hope to see you there.

    At one time I had Don's 22's,6's and 30's. I think all of them were a 7 ogive.
